My report is easy…nothing in…nothing out, but stick around here a second and give me some advice.
I’ve been SLOWLY working on Patchwork Times quilt, Making Ends Meet. I have the blocks done for the center and have them all laid out.
I like the look and now I am thinking that I am going to make more blocks…skip the borders….I have been in a non border kick and I think I like that plan. If I did the quilt according to Judy’s directions, I won’t have enough of the same background fabric but this way, all the background can be the same. I might put an small 3″ plain border around the edge or just bind it with no border at all…I love Judy’s designs. They are all easy yet look more complicated.
So the official stash report is…
Used this Week: 0 yards
Used year to Date: 77.5 yards
Added this Week: 0 yards
Added Year to Date: 26.5 yards
Net Used for 2011: 51 Yards For more stash reports head on over to Patchwork Times.
Next week, I should have a finished quilt…not this one…a different one.
Oh gosh…more blocks and no border gets my vote! I’m liking this one bunches!
I agree with Mary–it will be a great looking quilt!
I love the brightness of this quilt. Especially the orange!
Oh, Jo, this is turning out beautifully!!! I still need to get going on my “Making Ends Meet” quilt! :( But seeing yours gives me the motivation to get busy on it!! Thanks for the photo update on it!!
Beautiful quilt. I like the no border idea for this oe also.
Love your fabric choice on this one. It looks wonderful without the border.
Looks great, can’t wait to see the finish!
I think it would look good with either: just a binding OR a 3″ border. Great quilt!
I like the borders, but I see what you mean about background fabric… I would do more blocks and then bind the cutie!
Great choices of fabric! Can’t wait to see the completed quilt with no borders. I can’t start mine until I get home to my stash….
I really like it. So much so, in fact, that I’ve saved the picture to my quilt “inspiration” folder.
I changed up my borders too on Making Ends Meet. I had a similar problem. Ran out of #5 fabric and really wanted to use a cute animal fabric in the borders. Only wanting to pull from my stash adjustments were made. Maybe this could be an option for you. I do think it needs one final background fabric for a border. Sandi
I love this one!!!!!
HI Jo, as usual it looks great. BTW, the four-patches near the right bottom are going the wrong direction. still time to rotate it. I love the colors. I vote for a blue binding. Love the blue and orange, really lets the pattern stand out.
